Repeat this school year.

Children have had extremely disrupted school year since March 2020.  That is despite the commendable efforts of our wonderful educators, many of whom will be parents themselves.  Children of working parents, particularly primary school age cannot learn from home or be educated by their parents.  It is physically and mentally impossible.  Their emotional and intellectual development has been damaged.  The anxiety they will have experienced can only add to the disruption in their ability to learn.  They are our future society.

The number of years set to achieve the required education has been decided upon for good reasons, and is a minimum standard.  This is why high rates of non attendance are not accepted.  Reports of legal action being taken against parents who do not comply with this has been well documented.

Surely anything significantly less than what is required is not good enough. Surely our children are entitled to this at the very least.  Home schooling is not an option for the vast majority of children.  They are entitled to repeat this year of missed schooling.  

To ask teachers to deal with the fall out of this years disaster of a school year.  Whilst trying to get children to the stage they should be at is grossly unfair and  is disrespectful to even ask it.

By repeating the current school year we hope that a reasonable solution to the significant components of learning missed can be found. 

Take the pressure off children. Take the pressure off teachers. Take the pressure off parents.
